Give Rights to a User to Access Another User's Home Folder

Posted on 2011-05-06

Our network users's home folder mapped to U: drive. I need to give a manager to access to his staff' ( who is on vacation) U: drive. I added the manager to this staff's ntf rights Read, Write Modify, Excecutable. Then I found out he cannot access the Parent Folder not mention accessing  that staf's folder. The parent folder, I named Users where all user's home folder exists.  I don't want to give him right to access everybody's folder.

How do I assign the manager's rights to access  his staff U drive only?

Thank you very much in advance!

    Have you tried sharing out just that one user's folder and give the manager share rights to it as well. It might bypass the overall share without giving him access to other folders.
